Indians, Braxton County win regional tennis tournament champion

From Staff Reports

The Bridgeport boys team almost will have a full house next week in Charleston for the AA-A state tournament.

Tommy Joyce and Kenan Bell each won regional titles in singles and doubles competition Wednesday, as did their teammates, Dusty Poster and Brian Berry. These four were the bulk of the Indians' 26 points, good enough for the team regional title.

"(Bridgeport) dominated the whole match from beginning to end," tournament director and Grafton coach Alan DePiano said. "We knew they were loaded."

Petersburg finished second in boys' competition with 20 1/2, including the No. 3 doubles title, and Moorefield was third with 17.

The girls competition was a little more complex, in essence a four-team race, DePiano said.

Braxton County won with 21 points. Grafton was second with 19, followed by Petersburg (18 1/2) and Bridgeport (13 1/2).

"Bridgeport kind of slacked off a little bit at the end," DePiano said.

Grafton's Jennifer Teagarden defeated Bridgeport's Jenna Mirandi, 8-4, for the No. 1 singles title in what DePiano called the best match of the tournament.

Jennifer Hartwell and Karli Snyder also combined for the No. 3 doubles victory, but the Bearcats fell victim to several critical late matches in head-to-head competition with Braxton. The Eagles won four regional title matches.

"We played well -- just a bounce of the ball here and there (decided it)," DePiano said.

Mirandi and Grafton's Jennifer Byers also qualified for states in singles. Byers and Teagarden qualified for doubles competition, as did Mirandi and Alex Marino.

States begin at 9 a.m. Thursday in Charleston and continue through Friday, with the championships held Saturday.
